About this Unit
From 2010, this unit will be replaced by 300627 - Toxicology. Toxicology is the study of toxicants or poisonous substances; their nature, effects on the human body, on populations and on ecosystems. Toxicology is important in both workplace and external environmental risk assessment and management. This unit introduces basic concepts and explores groups of toxicants in terms of properties, sources and uses of specific member substances, associated toxicity and hazard, potential for exposure and nature of disease or impact. Relevant aspects of risk assessment are introduced. Assessment is by extended portfolio and a toxicological inventory in the student's own field of interest.
